“As far as I can tell The Affordable Care Act is anything BUT affordable ...” ACA is aka the Unaffordable Care Act.
My wife and I are both retired citizens. One of the things we do is to try and avoid traffic jams and crowds when we go out for lunch and to do our errands.
So, when we go out to lunch it is usually after the so called lunch hour, 12:45 pm to 1 pm.
Since the first of the year, we have noticed two interesting trends:
1. Even less people than normal in the good restaurants and better so called fast food places for lunch. Finding a parking place rarely occurs now.
2. Often, there is a what appears to be a mini rush hour re traffic from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm, like we used to have after 3:30 pm and then 5 pm plus or minus a half hour. The drivers don’t appear to be going shopping or after school kids. Usually just a driver and no passengers, lining up at the traffic lights.
My wife knows many friends and others, who have had their work day hours cut to 4 to 6 hours per day. Even Walmart and other chains are cutting the daily hours for their employees since the first of the year.
A younger relative couple living in an East Bay county are seeing similar traffic patterns re a new mini rush hours. The husband is getting home about 15 to 25 minutes early. He said the end of the work day traffic is a lot lighter, and the going to work traffic is about the same. The wife usually does her shopping and errands from 2 to 3:30 pm before picking up their kids at school. She said that the traffic loads during that time are similar to past years’s after 3:30 pm.
No, it’s a POS if you are a person trying to start your own small business. Now, thanks to the ACA, you now have to insure employees, doesn’t matter if you have a big competitor like Wal-Mart in town, doesn’t matter if they are part-time either. That’s the problem with this administration and the Congress, they are upholding and leveraging big corporations and giving a great advantage in that direction.
Even the name is a lie. You would think a sitting US President pulling a scam on the American people like this would be enough for impeachment but noooo. What the hell does this fool have to do? Seriously, round up people and start executing them? Well he pretty much is doing that already isn’t he when you think about it. How many people have lost their insurance already? Millions? How many people so far have been turned away from life saving treatments because of that? How many have died? And these things posing as Republicans do absolutely NOTHING about it, they just keep allowing this Islamo Marxist Kenyan run amok with the lives of Americans.
